For operational purposes, the Altis Police Service is divided into five geographical divisions known within the force as "constabularies". These mainly represent the main population centres on Altis, (being Kavala, Agios and Athira) however some constabularies also serve specialist roles, being the Road Traffic Unit and Police Academy.

The five existing divisions with their divisional identifiers and their divisional commander are as follows:

Identifier District Partnership Working Areas District Commander District HQ
KV City of Kavala "The Square Mile" (Kavala City Centre) CSI JAEGARN Kavala Police Station
WA West Altis Towns and Cities to the West of Agios (including Agios) <Template Missing Role> Agios Police Station
EA East Altis Towns and Cities to the East of Agios (not including Agios) <Template Missing Role> Athira Police Station
RT Road Traffic Unit The Motorways of Altis CSI Shuttle Dependent on operational requirements
AC Police Academy Responsible for training officers CSI Nomad Affected by location of trainees

The force headquarters is located at Kavala Police Station in the Kavala Bay area.

Specialist Operations

  • Armed Response (AR) – Responsible for providing armed response and support across the whole of Altis, Armed Response travel in ARVs (Armed Response Vehicles) responding to calls involving firearms, weapons and gangs, which may put a other officers at significant risk. Armed Response is an amalgamation of officers with a higher level of firearms proficiency.
  • Specialist Protection Group (SPG) – Provides personal armed protection for the Royal family, Prime Minister (Mayor) and other ministers, ambassadors, visiting heads of state and other Very Important Persons (VIP's). The Specialist Protection Group is responsible for providing armed officers that guard important locations such as Her Majesty's Treasury, 10 Kavala Street and the RBA Treasury. They are responsible for escorting all the aforementioned people and occasionally are involved in prisoner transport. They use vehicles to halt traffic, and use armed cars at the rear of the escort for armed assistance and traffic control. Once the escort has passed, the roads are immediately opened. All SEG officers are armed.
  • National Police Air Service (NPAS) – Provides centralised air support to the Altis Police Service, based from Kavala Police Station and the National Police Air Service Headquarters located beside the Altis International Airport.
  • Marine Policing Unit (MPU) – Responsible for policing the Altis coastline and surrounding waters. They utilise a specialised fleet of watercraft to perform maritime operations, based at Kavala Police Station and the Marine Policing Unit Headquarters located beside the Altis International Airport.

Multi-agency Operations

  • National Crime Agency (NCA) – Replacing the Narcotics Infringement Unit (NIU), It also assumed a number of responsibilities of other law enforcement agencies and. It is the Altis' lead agency against organised crime, involving drugs, firearms and gangs through partnership working with constabularies and other specialist units.
  • SPECTRE – The Security Service, also known as SPECTRE (previously "Spectre"), is the United Kingdom's (and Altis') domestic counter-intelligence and security agency working within the Altis Police Service. SPECTRE is directed by Police Command, and the service is bound by the Security Service Act 1989. SPECTRE is directed to protect British parliamentary democracy and economic interests, and counter terrorism and espionage within the UK & Altis.

Ranks

The Altis Police Service uses the standard British police ranks, indicated by shoulder boards (epaulettes), up to Chief Constable.

Following controversy over various Police Complaints where officers refused to identify themselves by name and a statement by Chief Constable Tadworth in early 2016 that "the public has a right to be able to identify any uniformed officer whilst performing their duty", collar numbers were introduced, which are allocated individually to each officer, who must tell you their collar number except from in a small amount of specific circumstances. Every officer (except those that are masked or plain clothed) is required to display their collar number at all times.

  • Police Community Support Officer (PCSO): The rank assigned to all newly recruited officers, displayed by a blue epaulette with "PCSO" written on it.
  • Probationary Police Constable (Prob. PC): "PC" written on the epaulette with "Police Constable", name and collar number also displayed.
  • Police Constable (PC): "PC" Written on the epaulette with "Police Constable", name and collar number also displayed. Note that any officer above Police Constable has passed all their initial training as provided by the Police Academy and therefore at this point officers become entirely responsible for their own decision making in relation to the National Decision Model (NDM)
  • Sergeant (SGT): Three pointing-down chevrons above the divisional call sign and shoulder number, officers above this rank may have additional powers to authorise specific actions.
  • Inspector (INS): Two Order of the Bath stars, informally known as "pips".
  • Chief Inspector (CI): Three pips.
  • Superintendent (SI): Single crown, this is the first Constabulary Command rank.
  • Chief Superintendent (CSI): Single crown over one pip.
  • Assistant Chief Constable (ACC): Crossed tipstaves in a bayleaf wreath, this is the first Police Command rank.
  • Deputy Chief Constable (DCC): One pip over Assistant Chief Constable's badge.
  • Chief Constable (CC):Crown over Commander's badge.
